It was great to discover recently the location of one of my personal favourite paintings, “Strawberry Mousse”. As a child I loved this irreverent work depicting a well-to-do lady shovelling down her dessert.
So I was delighted to find its location purely by chance on Instagram.
The painting currently hangs behind the bar at Wilton’s, a traditional English restaurant located in Jermyn Street, London. I found it whilst searching the hashtag #ruskinspear. This shot by Melina Keays (@keays9) was one of the first results:
The painting can also be seen in place in this tweet from Tapas Magazine (@taspasmagazine).

I’m hoping to make it to Wilton’s soon to see this fantastic picture first-hand.
